Configuring Permission Sets Using the .NET Framework Configuration Tool (Mscorcfg.msc)

Each security policy level has a set of permission sets that can be associated with code groups on that level. You can create a permission set for a particular level and associate it with a new or existing code group.

You can use the .NET Framework Configuration tool (Mscorcfg.msc) to configure permission sets.

Important noteImportant

Mscorcfg.msc has been removed from the .NET Framework version 4 and later versions. This documentation applies only to earlier versions of the .NET Framework. For more information about security changes in the .NET Framework 4, see Security Changes in the .NET Framework 4.


The .NET Framework includes several built-in permission sets. The only built-in permission set that can be changed is the Everything permission set.
